of the week, the nsa revealed that its officers occasionally use the eavesdropping capabilities to spy on their love interest. yes, instead of national security they were checking on their lover's purity. one official tells the "wall street journal" that love cases make up most of the misconduct and there are only a few handful of cases over the past decade and result in administrative action or firing. meanwhile in an example of the nsa doing its job, the german magazine which is german for der-spiegel reports that the agencyien scripts the video conferencing system allowing it to have data from the new york-u.n headquarters. here is one of the videos secretly taken from inside the u.n. >> time for your snacks. there is one. you are going for three. >> he is going for three you animal cruelty person. >> that was the king of belgium. he abdocated not long after the video. >> since you started talking i will go to you. go ahead and bash the men and women who keep us safe via the nsa because keep in mind that mike baker could kill you using nothing but his left ear jie. and a cheese puff

: it isot just the nsa giving the creeps, it is the creeps at the irs giving americans a bigger case of the creeps. you are so out of your mind area did next. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do.

disclosed by nsa leaker edward snowden show a massive amount of money set aside for u.s. spying operations outside the cia or the nsa. amen jaifers joins us with me. sounds like a spy novel. >> absolutely. this is one of the most grossly held secrets of the intelligence, how much does it spend on the things that it does, how many employees does the united states intelligence community actually have? they want to keep that secret. thanks to this leak from edward snowd snowden, "the washington post" broke a blockbuster story and detailed for the first time what exactly is in the budget for the intelligence committee, including more than 21,000 employees at the cia. the first time we've seen this level. >> very fascinating reading that story. i know you looked over it. what stood out most for you? what do we know now more than before? >> in this era of drone warfare around the world, the cia reporting a 14.7 billion-dollar budget, that makes it the biggest component for a long time folks thought maybe the cia was no longer the dominant player in u.s. intelligence, maybe the national spashl in
wonderful nsa state? >> i would second anthony's judgment that i believe what's then revealed recently truly is unprecedented. the power of the government with the current technology to know where we are into a very high degree what we were doing every single minute of the day it would have been ridiculous for any novelist to embrace. >> it's not simply a reality but it is one that grows steadily worse. there is now a huge industry valued at something in the neighborhood of 80 to $100 billion annually. we don't really know. the people in the industry which involves hundreds of thousands of perhaps even millions of employees and i.t. companies are working full-time to intensify all of the techniques developed to know even more about everyone of us and everyone else on the are at that they can know about. and with the modern technology most people are in line to be watched with a degree of scrutiny that no one dreamed of until quite recently. so what you might say. many americans are saying so what. i don't care. that i would say is an extraordinarily stupid attitude to take. the fact that you
apparently are supportive of some action at this point, but if you recall, the nsa funding vote, do you remember the justin conners vote a couple weeks ago where they came close to passing a bill that would be taking money away on the nsa surveillance, and it was a phreut on both parties on the bill, and very narrowly it got defeated. that's a way to look at how the vote on syria will go. you will see the republicans and the liberal wing of the democratic party, and the isolationist wing of the republican party, they were on the losing side, but boy did they come close and they got 200 plus votes. >> chuck, it would seem to me that this is not just going to be a vote on military action in syria. this is in a lot of ways going to be a vote on america's role in the world moving forward. no? >> that's right. should america play the world's police officer, right? are we the ones in charge of deciding when an international law is broken, like assad did with the chemical weapons, since there is no other country willing to step up, is this the role of the united states? it's the role the unite
. >> it concerns me. here is the thing. it's already the nsa, we're so paranoid and skeptical and reasonably skeptical about the access the government has in general. now they're profiting off of it? c'mon, that is ridiculous. if anyone is going to profit off of the sale of my private and personal information, shouldn't it be me? >> eric: i won't touch it. let me go to wayne. there is no way out of the programs. there is no way to check a box and say don't sell my driving record or my health history to anybody. >> i'm just laughing, i am thinking who in the world is interested in all this stuff? why is anyone interested in my private information or jonathan or yours or anybody else's. it's just nuts. the problem is this is a violation of the constitution. they are digging in to everything they can. they don't have the right to do it. nobody stops them. the supreme court doesn't say anything. congress god forbid doesn't say anything. politicians on the take, they never say anything. that is what is wrong with it. >> at least -- >> eric: hold on -- >> at least, i want to say with a private com

, they have to talk about the deficit. they've got to talk about changing laws for the nsa and so on. a lot on their plates and now syria for the month of september. before i let you know, general, senator johnny isakson, a republican in georgia said this -- if we fail to take action against syria for his horrendous act then we are sending a signal to syria as well as to iran and north korea that they are accountable to no one. your thoughts? >> well, i got that, but if we're going to be hesitant, if the response is going to be a pinpick, if the syrians come back to this with assad in a stronger position, particularly in the eyes of his regional neighbors, if the syrian army and air force is not really damaged, and immediately starts, restarts the war and starts killing civilians at a higher rate, then the rest of the world is going to look at us and say, okay, america. what do you do next? and if we hesitate a second time, the net result of all of this may be worse than simply doing nothing, harris. >> general scales. a pleasure to you have this evening in pe spe evening. your perspective

host issues, whether it be the nsa surveillance program, immigration, domestic issues, whether to shut down the government over the president's healthcare plan, which largely goes into effect on october 1st. so perhaps this is -- and it certainly has been in the past. i don't know if it is in this case. perhaps this is part of the white house calculation. and as david very astutely pointed out a little while ago, if the white house were to quote, unquote win this debate, and get this authorization in congress, it would certainly weaken republicans and strengthen the president's hand. you hate to think that cynically when we are talking about issues like that but this is washington after all. we all have been doing this for quite some time. it's not surprising. >> so if you just joining united states, let me recap. we can take a quick break and pick it up on the other side of the break. basically, the president did make a statement in the rose garden about -- about a half hour ago, surprising many people saying that he will seek authorization from congress for military strikes in syria
because the united states especially in recent months with the nsa scandal and what not did lose a lot of -- a lot of its credibility. so putin can continue to push that message. >> saying it's all talk but why is putin speaking now? >> well, i mean he's speaking now because it has been a week since -- or 10 days since the -- since the strike, the chemical strike, and putin has been sort of speaking here and there in one sentence or less and also his foreign ministry has been speaking quite a bit. so there has been a lot of conversation going on. and so there was speaking in the far east right now. >> russia and iran have warned a u.s. attack could have catastrophic repercussions in the region. what do you think that means? >> well, i think what putin, i think what he means is that at the has little to lose or assad has little to lose, listen 100,000 people died. if it is true he is the one who used chemical weapons, he can do it again and if he does have nothing to lose, then, he -- the cat two astromh can be more neeta kruschavev, appreciate your time. >> thank you british lawmakers
